Jörg Müller









I am an Associate Professor of human-computer interaction at Aarhus University. Before joining Aarhus University, I worked as a visiting Associate Professor at the Alexander von Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society, Berlin, and as a Senior Researcher at Deutsche Telekom Laboratories. My PhD is from Münster University and my master degree in computer science is from the university of Saarbrücken.

My research in the field of human-computer interaction focusses on gestural interaction in ubicomp settings. My research interests include immediate usability for gestural interfaces, novel (visual and auditory) display technologies, multisensory integration, public displays and in-the-wild studies. Further, I am a proponent of free software and founder of the FreeMind project.
